The Simulator provides an interactive preview of how your staged rules affect relevancy, using your search data and a simple search interface. When you enter a query, the Simulator shows you the triggered rules, in the order in which they were triggered, along with any triggered facets.

You can edit any of the triggered rules, then re-run the query to see new results. You can also return to the query rewriting dashboard to enable or disable query rewriting strategies.

The Simulator sends requests to the _rules_simulator query profile, which you can configure to point to any pipeline and collection in your app.
